I used coconut oil in place of butter and coconut sugar in place of regular. Made individually in custard cups, and microwaved for 2.5 to 3 minutes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash and core apples.
  2. Make a shallow cut in the skin completely around each apple, one-inch from the bottom.
  3. This keeps skin from shrinking during cooking.
  4. Place apples in a glass baking dish or in individual custard cups.
  5. Place 1 tablespoon brown sugar and 1/2 tablespoon butter into the core of each apple.
  6. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  7. Cover apples with wax paper.
  8. Microwave on High for 10 to 14 minutes, or until tender.
  9. Let stand, covered, 3 minutes before serving.
  10. For one apple, use an individual custard cup or bowl and microwave for 2 to 3 minutes on High, for two apples, microwave 3 to 4 minutes on High.
